OctPoWriMo Day 23

 What we once have enjoyed we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes part of us. – Helen Keller

I'm attending a Memorial Service this weekend and will come together with family and friends to remember a very special couple. I'm grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this celebration of life. For today's prompt, let's think about how we honor loved ones. I think I'll skip the word and poetry form suggestions and leave this open to personal interpretation.

Remember, our prompts are only suggestions, you can find your inspiration wherever your muse leads you. Please visit the other participants, share the hashtag, #OctPoWriMo on social media, and share your link in the comments below. Let us know how this journey into poetry is going for you and if this is your first year or if you have been with us from the beginning.



  2. Mine uses yesterday's prompt words. I'm playing catch-up after taking a week off to finish my story entry for this year's Deathlehem anthology.

  3. I chose to write about a living loved one instead of one who's passed away.

  4. This is not a fun poem. But it is in line with a memorial service, because it reminds me of a time long past, a time I wish would not come back.
    It also helped me establish links to my dead loved ones in a Dia de los muertes kind of way.
    Trigger Warning: very dark thoughts.


Your words feed the hearts of the poets who lovingly volunteer to share their passion for poetry with you.
